the biggest impacts. that is exactly why it is so important for us to respond big and fast as local information starts coming in. i want to thank all of the members of the team for the outstanding work they're doing, but the other thing that makes this storm unique is that we anticipate it will be slow moving. meaning it may take a long time not only to clear, but to get, for example, power companies back in to clear out the trees and put things back in place so that folks can start moving back home. my main message to everyone involved is that we have to take this seriously. the federal government is working effectively with state and local governments. it will be very important that populations in the impacted states take this seriously, listen to your state and local officials. my message to the governors and mayors is that anything they need, we will do it. we will cut through red tape and not get bogged down in a lot of rules. you want to make sure that we are leaning forward into making sure we have the best possible response into what is going to be a big and messy system. cr

had been back filled by other parts of the department. >> but not with u.s. military? >> no, sir. >> that's all i need to know. and i really appreciate you folks taking all the time today. >> colonel wood would you respond? you looked like you were chomping at the bit. would you agree with that? >> no, sir i would not agree. a special forces soldier is way above the skill level of a hired local national armed way pistol or even the m.s.d. agents that were on the ground as well. >> i think i remember the quote never take a knife to a gun fight. with that we go to the gentleman from connecticut. >> thank you very much mr. chairman. and i add my gratitude to those members of the diplomatic corpse who are putting their lives on the line for this country my sympathy to those of the families who were lost. i think the most important questioning was about 20 minutes ago about what level of security might have been necessary to repel this attack. and i wanted to pursue that one step further -- >> would the gentleman yield for a second? >> sure. >> in order to extra kate successfully thos

and actions. he said, "the use of one nuclear bomb in israel would kill everything. it is not irrational to contemplate such an eventuality." that is coming from one of the so-called "moderates" of iran. shockingly, some people have begun to peddle that absurd notion that a nuclear of iran would actually stabilize the middle east. yeah, right. that is like saying a nuclear armed al qaeda with our share in an era of universal peace. ladies and gentlemen, i have been speaking about the need to prevent iran from developing nuclear weapons for over 15 years. i spoke about it in my first term in office as prime minister. i spoke about it when i left office. i spoke about it when it was fashionable and i spoke about it when it was not fashionable. and speak about it now because the hour is getting a late, very late. i speak of it now because the iranian nuclear calendar does not take time out for anyone or for anything. i speak about it now because when it comes to the survival of my country, it is not only my right to speak, it is my duty to speak.

mitt romney in the republicans' blood lust. >> gideon moore in mecklenberg county, talk to us about the effects as you see them of third party candidates on the republican effort in north carolina. >> right now from what we are seeing, it doesn't look like it's having an impact. to the extent they are drawing folks out, folks being drawn from both republican and democrat party and doesn't look like it will impact either the presidential race or any of our other gubernatorial races. >> we've got a tweet from john in north carolina, who writes under the handle affirmatively. john writes, north carolina doesn't have large failed cities of crackheads and gangbangers and thus rarely votes for the democrat nominee. gideon moore? >> i'm not sure what to make of that. we certainly have our issues. the fact is that this is a state that traditionally has republican nominees for president and i believe we will return to that in 2012. >> next up is rich in centreville, virginia, on our line for republicans government ahead, rich. >> thanks for taking my call. last night i was watching i think n

under section 1331, is that it is and application of u.s. substantive and remedial lot. and the offenses were telling the other country they have to entertain private civil litigation. and there is a difference -- >> you're right about that. what about bradford? >> bradford is the best thing the petitioners have and the founding iraq. he could have been speaking about the high seas. >> if you read it, it looks as if what he was up said about or what britain was upset about was an american. >> it was americans, but if properly read, the hostilities of which he spoke was the high seas part of the conduct. it was an american who piloted the french fleet 60 miles from the a list -- illes de los to the sierra leone river. >> before your time runs out, there would be no basis under the alien tort statute. but assume for a moment that those two cases -- that we accept them -- to accept them. is there anything different about your case? >> yes, your honor. there are many differences between us and filartiga. this is a case in which there is a class action against a corporation. if he did not agr

of an overt war with the islamic republic. in new overt use of u.s. force to disarm yet another middle eastern state of weapons of mass destruction that it does not have, while staying quiet about israel's 200-plus nuclear weapons arsenal, would elevate already high levels of anti-american sentiment in the middle east, threaten our remaining allies there, and render their cooperation with the united states practically impossible. and u.s. military action against the islamic republic would have no international legitimacy, no u.n. security council authorization, and no allies by israel, and maybe -- and i stress maybe -- the u.k., if you were reading the press this morning about their latest legal opinion. the larger part of the interpret community -- and remember, 120 of the u.n.'s 193-member states are part of the align movement, who voted to have the islamic republic as their chair, and they're already on record as saying they would consider an attack illegal, and that would ratify america's image as an outlaw superpower. this is really important today compared to even a few years ago. becau

: william joins us from texas. caller: i am so happy to get through. this is my first time. if mitt romney were president and he went to war, would you have your kids go to war with him? guest: i think mitt romney will have to make that case and prove he is able to make large decisions on that level of politics. he is growing questions about what the administration knew and the decisions they made about security in benghazi and afterwards to insist it was not a terrorist action. i think all of that will give mitt romney a strong opening. it remains to be seen. based on his performance in the first debate talking about the economy, i suspect he will do well. host: are you still with us? caller: in 1968, he went to paris, france. i do not consider him a leader. guest: it was for a peace corps type thing the mormon church does. you could probably dig up things i have written making fun of anyone who goes to live in paris. he has done a good job of defending that and making the argument he was doing a terrible thing and fulfilling a public service requirement of the mormon church. that speaks
